      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, CO folds, Hero calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1) 2, A, 7 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.30, MP3 calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.70, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($3.3) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.10, SB calls $2.10.

      River: ($7.5) 3 (2 players)
      SB raises to $19.55, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $7.5.

      villain 78/38 af 1.5 riv agg 40% 4.0(3bet) 68hands

      Main reson not to 3bet here was to keep the fish in the pot as well,pf raiser was a 17/11 small sample.

      Flop : the raise was kinda small,but the main reason of it was to keep weaker A`s and Fd`s in the hand

      Turn: Value bet

      River: :heart: = no way i can call.

      My conclusion: he might be stupid enough not to re`raise in 3way pot with A2,A7,22,77 but mostly i think he had a idiotic hand like KQh ,called down and got there. (maybe 4 :heart: 5 :heart:)

      What do you think?

      Hello cozacu,

      Preflop: Do you really want to play AQo in multiway pot being deep? I would definitely not do that. :) Therefore 3bet it or just fold it. We don't really want to play for the stacks with just TPTK with SB. :D And never even know where we stand.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you raise so small on the flop? You are giving good odds for a draw. The same goes as well for turn where I would definitely bet it bigger. :) There are still a lot worse hands which can call us, including worse Ax.

      Best Regards.
